I was thinking that someone would nominate a player to be discussed, and we can all post our thoughts on said player; strengths, weaknesses, potential... anything, really. Now I know I could just google the player to find out a little information about certain players, but it doesn't answer all the questions about all the players, and I'd much rather read the intellectual insight of our fellow members as opposed to uninformed drivel written elsewhere on the web.
I'm not sure on the format and how this will "run" exactly, so it's subject to change, but for now, I'll pick a player and we can discuss said player in detail.
Discussion #1: Yann M'Vila.
M'Vila is a great place to start this discussion, I feel. There's so much to talk about with him, though I'm pretty sure it'll be hard for us to extrapolate many faults within his game. He's merely 21 years young yet his presence on the pitch is that of a much more experienced customer. He's very strong, powerful, agile and most-impressively, technically-gifted. It's not that common you see players who play deeper with great technical ability, but M'Vila is very astute in that respect.
Since deputising for Rennes in 2009 after being snapped up as a youth prospect, he's gone on to be an integral part of their team whilst only having broken through the ranks a couple of season's ago. Since then, he's also managed to rack up 17 full-international caps... and the most impressive part of that is that he doesn't look out of place alongside players who have been amongst the international scene for many years.
He's already been targeted by Wenger, and I'm sure many other clubs are paying close attention to his progress as he's definitely a player that looks to have a bright future.
What are your thoughts?
